Traditional nutcrackers make a holiday display full of magic and delight. The Holiday Guard nutcracker stands full at attention, ready to protect against the dreaded Mouse King. From the formal shako hat to the tips of his polished boots, this formal nutcracker glares fiercely, with a protective air. Hand-painted red and black accents add to the militaristic appeal of this statuette. Intended for display only; this ceramic figurine is not an actual nut breaking tool.
